Sonoma

Home Studios

Bring the feeling of wine country to your piece of the world.

Our Sonoma home studio kit draws from its natural surroundings to create a retreat that will unleash the spirit within. The 4-sided, hip roof design creates a cathedral-like overhead with soaring space. Clean lines and restrained architectural details make this great home studio idea comfortable as either garden a studio or small home office. The Sonoma blends into the scenery, rather than obscuring it, making it perfectly tucked away in a corner of your property. Make it yours in our Custom Design Center.

Our measurements (i.e. 8ft. x 12ft.) are taken from the outside of the floor & wall framing, therefore, they don't include the siding, and/or sheathing.

For true interior measurements, subtract the thickness of the wall framing; 3 ½” for 2x4 walls, and 5 ½” for 2x6 walls. Note: 2 x 4 is actually 1 ½” x 3 ½” and 2 x 6 is actually 1 ½” x 5 ½” due to the properties of "finished” lumber.

Wall Plan

Sonoma studio wall plan

For true exterior dimensions, add the siding, sheathing (if applicable), and corner trim pieces. The Canexel siding is 3/8" thick, the cedar siding is 3/4" thick and the log siding is 1 1/2" thick. The wall sheathing varies from 7/16” to 3/4”. The corner trim is 3/4".

If you have any other questions pertaining to the size of the building, please do not hesitate to ask us, we're here to help.

Roof Framing Plan

In strong competition with gable roofing, hip roofing is up there for the most popular roofing style. Hip roofs typically feature a low/moderate slope, with all sides sloping from the center toward the walls of the structure.

Hips are more complicated to frame, sheath, and finish, but are typically simpler to trim and eliminate the vertical wall component of a gable roof style, known as “gable ends”.

Additional consideration should be given to ventilation. Due to its geometry and the lack of gable ends, roof vents must be placed on the roof itself. Consult with your contractor or roofing company, for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Overhang Detail

Soffits are the cedar trim pieces that are attached to the underside of the rafter ends.
Fascia is typically the cedar 1x4 that’s used to cover the rafter tips and provide a nice straight level line for the bottom of your roof.

Foundation

Traditional patio stone foundation. A concrete pad is also ideal for poolside applications.

Our materials are chosen for their aesthetic appeal, durability, and environmental friendliness. Construction is engineered for garages and cabins but ideally suited for storage sheds and pool cabanas as well.

Popular upgrades

Enhanced Siding Package

If you are thinking of adding insulation to your Sonoma home studio, consider adding one of our "enhanced siding packages". It's a layer of sheathing (OSB or plywood) and house wrap (Typar and optional HomeSlicker) that provides a moisture barrier to your structure.

Interior Cedar Siding and Framing

The Sonoma style allows for a wide array of interior finishes. Our cedar siding or framing interior upgrade can be incorporated on the walls and/or ceiling, providing a warm rustic feel.

Interior cedar siding choices

Roof Extension

One way to expand the functionality of the Sonoma style is to extend the roof past one or more of the exterior walls.

The roof is then supported on a post & beam structure custom to your design. Perfect for a shaded outdoor living area.

Extra Overhang

The Sonoma style roof features a standard 6” overhang where the roof meets the walls. The overhang is trimmed out with a soffit and fascia board. Extra overhang is offered in increments of 6” (i.e +6 (12”), +12 (18”)).!
